State votes on casinos, bears

LANSING (AP) - While Michigan
voters may have shut out animal-rights
activists trying to limit hunting prac-
tices in the state, Detroit residents voted
to allow three casinos downtown and
the construction of a new stadium.
Tuesday's elections saw the failure of
Proposal D, which would have outlawed
the use of bait and dogs in hunting bear.
A victorious sportsman said the elec-
tion returns may discourage efforts to
limit hunting in the near future.
"I've got to believe the animal rights
people will see Michigan as unfriendly
territory," said Rick Jameson, executive
director of the Michigan United
Conservation Club. "This is the worst
licking they got."
Though Michigan voters rejected
Proposal D, they approved Proposal G,
which gives the state Natural Resources
Commission the sole authority to set
hunting rules.
With 98 percent of the vote counted,
"D" was opposed by 62 percent and
supported by 38 percent. "G" had sup-
port from 69 percent and was opposed
by 31 percent.

dren. A Democratic House may also
consider re-establishing the Clean Air
and Water Commission that Engler dis-
banded, she said.
LSA sophomore Erin Carey,
External Relations Committee chair for
the Michigan Student Assembly, said
having more Democrats in Lansing
will be helpful for student lobbyists.
"It probably won't change how we
approach it too much but it could make
our job significantly easier, Carey
said. Assembly members regularly
lobby legislators for increased higher-
education funding.

up the groundbreaking date of a down-
town stadium for the Detroit Lions.
The proposal called for excise taxes
of 1 percent on hotel rooms for stays
less than 30 days and 2 percent on car
rentals, and is expected to raise $80
million over 30 years for the $225 mil-
lion stadium.
The Lions' domed stadium would sit
next to a new, open-air Tiger Stadium in
a $485 million sports complex.
"We think the payoff for the people
of Detroit and southeast Michigan is
going to be tremendous" said Anthony
Neely, spokesperson for Mayor Dennis
Archer.
When the Lions do move downtown,
people will be able to bet on them with-
in city limits, thanks to the passage of
Proposition E.
The proposal allows up to three casi-
nos in the city. With 98 percent of the
state's precincts reporting, Proposal E
got "yes" votes from 52 percent and
"no" votes from 48 percent.
Supporters, including Detroit Mayor
Dennis Archer, say Detroit casinos
would create thousands of jobs and
pump $1.2 million daily into the city
economy.
But casino opponents said they

object to the atmosphere that often sur-
rounds casinos.
"If they want to have casinos, heroin
and drugs, fine. That's not my idea of the
rebirth of a city for the 21st century,"
said former U.S. Rep. Carl Pursell. "It
sounds like another Las Vegas to me."
On the other three proposals on the
statewide ballot:
In a partisan fight, Democrats

forbid the use of bingo games to raise
political money. Democrats mustered
the votes to defeat a Republican law -
passed by the Legislature but placed on
the ballot by Democrats - to outlaw
bingo games as political fund-raisers:

posal that won lopsided approval.
In an issue near to the hearts of
Michigan veterans, voters approved
Proposal C to make it harder to use the
Michigan Veterans' Trust Fund for
expenses other than programs for veter-
ans. The proposal puts the trust fund in
the Michigan Constitution, in an
attempt to keep its funds safe from raids
for other purposes.

to Bollinger's advantage.
"(The process) puts an enormous pre-
mium on naming the person you know
already," Fleming said. "It happens that
Lee's a superb person and it's therefore a
very good appointment. But the proce-

"Anybody

able to step in and be effective
